Special Events /Win A Bike for Earn A Bike
Win A Bike for Earn A BikeFriday, May 18 from 6:00 - 9:00pm FLIPANY & Citizen Bike
Many of us rode bicycles as children and still ride them daily as adults, but for many youth in South Florida, owning a bike may be out of financial reach, and maintaining their bike a necessity as transportation to school and after-school jobs.
Enter, Earn-A-Bike, a hands-on learning and earning program for youth ages 10-17. During the 8 week program students gain valuable leadership and teamwork skills and increase their knowledge of bike safety and basic riding laws while getting hands-on experience working with a bike mechanic to rebuild a bicycle. After successfully completing the program student’s get to take their bikes home with a helmet and lock courtesy of FLIPANY to use for their own transportation and entertainment, thus promoting physical activity and safe riding amongst the youth.
With May being National Bike Month, Friday Night Sound Waves has selected FLIPANY as our spotlight non-profit of the Month to raise funds and awareness for their Earn-A-Bike program.
Pick up a Raffle Ticket, Friday, May 18 or purchase a raffle ticket online, for the chance to win a new bike, courtesy of FLIPANY supporter, Citizen Bike.
